Green Economy Biosphere Project: The Omo Biosphere Reserve

Language: English

The Omo Biosphere Reserve is located in Ijebu, southern Nigeria, roughly 135km north-east of Lagos with an elevation between 15m and 150m above sea level. Established in 1977, roughly 6,000 people live within the biosphere reserve boundaries which cover a total area of 130,600 hectares. The establishment of Omo Sawmill Industry and the introduction of forest plantation projects rapidly expanded the human population in and around the area. Nevertheless, the communities are well dispersed, either in small camps or villages.
